* This module provides TCP/IP sockets. A socket provides a duplex binary
* stream. The read and write stream can be obtained by the ordinary
* ISO core standard open/[3,4] predicates. The open options also apply
* to sockets so that a binary stream can be easily viewed as a
* text stream in various encodings.
* ?- client_new('pot.ty', C), open(C, write, S),
* write_term(S, 'Hello World!'), nl(S), close(C).
* A server socket can be created with the predicates server_new/2. The
* predicate server_accept/2 delivers a session socket. A client socket
* can be created with the predicates client_new/3. Server, session
* and client sockets can be closed with the ISO core standard
* close/[1,2] predicates.
* The predicate websock_new/2 allows promoting a socket to a web
* socket. The input and output streams will consume and generate
* web socket frames, but can be used as ordinary ISO core standard
* streams. During writing a final frame is generated when the
* predicate flush_output/[1,2] is used.

* server_new(P, S):
* The predicate succeeds in S with a new server socket for port P.
* server_accept(S, H):
* The predicate succeeds in H with a new session socket from server socket S.
* client_new(H, P, C):
* The predicate succeeds in C with a new client socket for host H and port P.
* websock_new(S, W):
* The predicate succeeds in a web socket W for the socket S.
